Proceeds from the charity single will help those affected by the Grenfell Tower fire.

The official video for Simon Cowell's Grenfell Tower charity single has been released.

The four minute clip features artists such as Robbie Williams, Stormzy, Rita Ora, Paloma Faith and Bastille performing a cover of Simon and Garfunkel's Bridge Over Troubled Water.

The video also shows the aftermath of the tragic fire at London's Grenfell Tower where 79 people lost their lives.

The track is now available to buy from iTunes and to stream on Spotify.

All proceeds will go to Artists For Grenfell and will be distributed via The London Community Foundation.

Other artists who have lent their names, and their voices, to the song include Brian May,  Nile Rodgers, Leona Lewis, X Factor winner Matt Terry, James Blunt, One Direction stars Liam Payne and Louis Tomlinson, Ella Eyre, and recent Britain’s Got Talent winner Tokio Myers.

The song was recorded at west London’s Sarm Studios, which is close to the Grenfell Tower site.

Rapeer Stormzy opens the track, saying: “I refuse to forget you/I refuse to be silenced/I refuse to neglect you.”

The video was broadcast on ITV on Wednesday night ahead of Coronation Street.
